Here at Techshake, the Ford Flex holds a special place in our hearts. I’ve personally reviewed two of them, and we ended up getting one as a long-term tester (thanks to Kevin Miller making the monthly payments on it). The Flex was intended as Ford’s minivan replacement, since Ford waved the white flag several years ago with the death of the Freestar minivan. Though the Flex doesn’t quite live up to the potential of having the utility of a minivan with the style of a crossover, it’s a fine family hauler. We asked for an updated 2012 model to see if MyFord Touch ruins the Flex or improves it.
Mercedes Benz has once again reshaped the foundations of its C63 AMG lineup with the official unveiling of the 2014 C63 AMG 507 Edition which replaces the old Development Package variant, and brings more muscle and new technology to the company’s M3 fighter.
Chrysler’s Mopar division has taken the wraps off its latest special edition model, the 2013 Mopar ’13 Dart which will make its formal debut at the 2013 Chicago Motor Show next week.
In a statement released earlier this week, Fiat the current owner of Chrysler, revealed its latest long term product plan which details what to expect from all five of its North American divisions (Chrysler, Fiat, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep) through the 2016 model year while also claiming once again that Alfa Romeo is coming back to the U.S. market.
About two weeks ago, my wife and our five year old son were in a pretty serious car accident. No father wants to get a call from his wife saying that a tractor trailer skidded into their van on a wet road, there was an airbag deployment, and that they were still waiting for the police or ambulance to show up. It took every ounce of will power that I have to not drive home at 120 miles per hour that day. Fortunately, they both survived, and thus far seem to have fairly minor injuries. (We’ll know more after my wife’s follow-up appointment on Friday).
